Refugees in Haskovo region after the Treaty of Neuilly in 1919


The refugee issue was one of the most important after the end of the First World War. For Bulgaria, after the signing of the Neuilly Peace Treaty, this problem marked the entire post-war decade. This contribution traces the specifics of the refugee and migration flow in the Haskovo region in the 1920s on the basis of a number of studies on the subject, archival documents, materials from the local press and official statistics. 

The predominant refugee flow in the region is from Thracian Bulgarians, but many refugees from Aegean Macedonia, Armenians and Russians came and settled here. In this way, the region presents a micromodel of the refugee problem in Bulgaria after the signing of the peace treaty in Neuilly until the mid-1920s. 

The most significant result on the demographic characteristics of the region was the absolute increase of the population and growth of the number of the Christian and Eastern Orthodox population.
